Just before the fall colors arrived, we made our way up to the Craggy Pinnacle for a hike and photo adventure. The trees and trails in Craggy are unlike anywhere else. It has always been a favorite place to go play and explore for us. The overlooks were especially wonderful as the skies were clear giving us amazing views of the area.
I look forward to our next adventure at Craggy – heading up there this weekend for some family portraits with an adventurous family I love to get to photograph!! Hope to get to share some of those photos soon!
